Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation what consideration he has given to the provision of remote V.H.F. transmitting and receiving stations for London Airport in order to provide improved communications with aircraft.
§ Mr. Beswick
A single channel V.H.F. radio network, which covers a considerable area of Southern England is already in operation and provides communication facilities to aircraft in the approaches to the Metropolitan Control Zone. A V.H.F. multi-channel network of a similar type is in course of construction and should be in operation early in the new year.
